There is something happening this weekend in the solar system, and you don’t want to miss it!
The first Supermoon of 2020 will be occurring THIS weekend, and I’m crossing my fingers and toes for a clear viewing!
It is known as the Super Snow Moon, but it goes by a few other names, too — Storm Moon, Hunger Moon, The Chinese Lantern Festival Moon, and a couple others.
Native Americans named this moon The Snow Moon, because of all the winter weather that usually accompanies February.
This moon is going to look full for about three days — through Monday. How freaking awesome is that?!?
A Supermoon occurs when the moon is at its closest to the earth, making it look full and huge. I LOVE them, because they are absolutely GORGEOUS.
According to Nasa, the moon will be full on Sunday MORNING starting at 2:33 am EST, but will appear full from Friday evening through Monday morning.
Get out your telescopes, if you have them, but you can totally see it with your naked eyes.
Don’t miss it!
Here’s some tips for viewing straight from NASA:
